Stop Motion & Animation!

TerraSai now OPEN to the PUBLIC!!!

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
TerraSai, is conceived as a short animation using recreations of previous acrylic and oil paintings synthesizing 3D modeling and 2D visual effects. The titled was created as a hybrid combining the Latin words “terra” and “sai” which mean “earth” and “seed” respectively in the Latin language. This animation will tell the story of the reincarnation of humankind, nature, and architecture within an abstract narrative. It is based on the concept of reincarnation, which is a belief that the soul and spirit, after biological death, begin a new life in a new body that may be human, animal or spiritual. Stylistically this animation will reflect the way I work on a painting canvas because it will be radical in layers, textures and dark and light monochromatic shades.

My goal in this animation is to successfully engage the audience in an inspiring story of reincarnation while also transporting the viewer into an immersive visual space, which transcends reality and abstraction into the realm of the magical and the imagined.
